The sky has never been the limit

Senior IT audit consultant at Deloitte, Andreas Onesmus, is not afraid to go up against all the odds, in an attempt to reach all goals he has set for himself.

After passing his Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) exam, and meeting the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ICASA) requirements that qualify him as an information system auditor, Andreas moved one step closer to his

dream.

After obtaining an honours degree in web informatics, a bachelor's degree in software engineering and a national diploma in IT from Nust, he paved his own way to success.

“The ability to be able to help others inspires me in so many ways to be a better person. With clients, I am glad I can help with identifying risk around their technology environment, and help to mitigate the risk through control testing, among other things.

“I'm also inspired to work hard and help my parents, for all the hard work they did to get me to where I am today. I hope to make them proud every day,” he says.

“It feels amazing, as its one of the examinations with a high failure rate, thus passing and becoming certified at my first attempt, it's an amazing feeling and it often gets hard to put it in words,” Andreas said.

Some of his short-term goals, both personally and in the company, include travelling to Europe and gaining as much leadership to enable him to reach his long-term goal of being in a management position.

When Andreas is not busy working, he likes to kickback and read about emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence and augmented reality. He loves sport, especially Formula One and soccer. He is also a self-proclaimed fitness junkie.
